[Xmca-l] Re: Jennifer Vadeboncoeur's book!

Dear Folks,

I was in one of those meetings that inspire participants to think about all the things they would rather be doing and arrived to my email to find this note! 

Special thanks, Artin, for letting people know, and for writing the beautiful foreword. 

Thanks to Alfredo, Ana, Natalia, Katherine, and Robert for their kind wishes! At AERA there was a book launch on Saturday at 2 pm; perhaps we can meet at another AERA, Robert?!

The scholarship of many people on this list was foundational to this book; my gratitude to them.

For now, and though a sweet grad student has already informed me of 3 typos (!), I am still enjoying being able to hold the book in my hands. It is "crystallized imagination that has become an object" (Vygotsky, 1930/2004, p. 20). Imagine that . :)

Best to all, jen
